The boys’ soccer game was at Presbyterian College, and the girls played in Prosperity, but the results were similarly agonizing for Clinton High.

The Mid-Carolina boys won 2-1 in Clinton, and the Mid-Carolina girls won 1-0 in Prosperity.

Gavin Kiley scored the lone goal for the boys, who are 1-4 overall and 0-2 in Region 3-3A. Kiley broke through with a dash down the left sideline and struck to put the Red Devils ahead.

The match was physical from start to finish.

Clinton carried the lead into the second half. The turning point occurred when Sam Tiller received a red card following a hard-slide tackle. The Red Devils had to play most of the second half a man down. The Rebels scored twice and won.

Girls' head coach Joe Benson said the team's performance was its best of the season, even in defeat. Clinton's first varsity girls' team is 4-3 overall and 1-1 in region play.

The game's only goal occurred 27 minutes into the second half.

Mid-Carolina also won the JV girls match in Prosperity by a score of 2-1.

Finally, Mid-Carolina edged Clinton in softball by a score of 3-2.

It’s always hard to lose a close game, but our girls played hard,” head coach Ryan Caughman said. “They battled all the way to the end. We did not hit the ball well enough to win tonight, but we will come back next week ready to go on Monday.”

Rain postponed baseball games that are to be made up on Saturday at Laurens District High School, Clinton High School and Laurens Academy alike.
